"As I do not have social media accounts of my own, I would like to post this note through my friends and colleagues Erica Lukes and Ryan Skinner. Thank you guys! I have received a lot of inquiries regarding my George Knapp and Jeremy Corbell comments, as well as my dislikings of the British bookseller phantom “Isaac Koi”. For those who listened to my first show with Erica, it was the Youtube trailer of “Hunt for the Skinwalker” by Jeremy Corbell that brought me out of “Ranch retirement”. As someone that has spent 6 continuous years on the Ranch (longer than anyone has ever before or since), and someone having had the privilege to work for RTB/BAASS, I am simply annoyed and aggravated by the way the trailer portrayed such a magnificent and sacred property.
I ended up actually purchasing the entire movie for $14.99 and have since watched it twice; some segments actually 10 times plus. In my opinion, Jeremy Corbell is a talented film-maker and George Knapp an interesting anchor. The film itself is fast paced and entertaining. I see two significant segments of this movie, the first half consisting of interpretations and personal opinions by Corbell and Knapp; the second part of some great historical interviews with Dr. Colem Kelleher, Dr. Eric Davis, Mr. Hickens Jr, Col Alexander and others. It is the first part that I have issues with and it is generally synonymous with opinion builders such as Knapp, Corbell, Koi and alikes, and the influence they hold on the uninitiated listener. It also caters to the army of internet trolls that frequently display a strong desire to “belong” and can be quite aggressive and overreaching. Corbell and Knapp have never spent any significant amount of time on the Ranch; I have not seen either on or around the property during my 6 years on the Ranch; and according to current Ranch personnel, the entire “production” took less than a couple of days in total. In other words, these are not “Ranch experts” and certainly not subject matter knowledgeable.
As most other “documentaries” of this nature, this production is based on threat, evil, panic, hype and misinformation. But it sells to audiences that may have never had prior exposure to the Ranch saga or similar itself. While Mr. Knapp knows better, he is frequently on the forefront of selling snake oil to the masses, and Mr. Corbell seemingly can’t resist to pose in front of a fictitious blackboard with “data” scribbled all over it. While Mr. Corbell has absolutely zero historical involvement or relevance to anything “Ranch”, he displays himself as an expert and frequently gives wrong information on the Ranch. For example, he claims that George Knapp’s files and documentations are the only existing ones ever to have been recorded on the Ranch (16:15). Wrong.
I have hundreds of pages of actual reports and events (1. person), accompanied by close to a thousand pictures of actual scenes and real investigations including measurements, dates and GPS data. Other scientists I worked alongside with (I am not a scientist, but simply a documenting witness and researcher) have also several pieces of evidence such as actual plaster prints, photographs, reports and so forth. As a matter of fact, I will be publishing every last bit of my material by the end of year and hopefully putting myth, fiction and con-artists to rest. Hopefully forever. It will be closing the BAASS chapter and opening a truthful door for the new Stewards of the Ranch, which I highly respect, admire and support.
The movie mixed a lot of none Ranch footage with Ranch footage, but never alluding to that fact. It has several seemingly photo-shopped or edited screenshots, such the first HS2 kitchen interior scene. Looks like the place was just painted a week prior. HS2 and HS3 are “like a backdrop to a slasher movie”? No, they are simply old buildings with history. There also was no picket fence around those buildings. The “dark and eerie” dirt road connecting east and west gates was actually once a County road with a school bus stop. The ambient light at night is exactly like anywhere else countryside, depending on moon phase or cloud cover. Dogs are NOT biosensors on the Ranch (1:20), as they quickly develop a routine to the things “unseen”. I know this as the person who introduced the K-9 William to the Ranch and watched him fully adapt and transition to his surroundings within 2 weeks. The CAT (aka “earthmover”) has never been used to dig random holes anywhere on the Ranch, RTB would have never allow such a thing and there are no evidence dig craters anywhere on the property. The CAT was only used to smoothen out the dirt road every once in a while. I know this, because I helped performing maintenance on it.
Mr. Knapp, there are no “predator monsters” living on the Ranch, and there are no people tied to chairs in expectations to be killed or devoured. How do I know this? I actually worked the Ranch for 6 years, day and night. Often without any artificial illumination and by myself. There also has never been any documentation of “Big Foot”. You guys are going as far as calling the Ranch a “mental and emotional torture chaimber”; clearly, you know better. Stop your artificial hype and disinformation nonsense, it is dangerous for us who actually work the place. I have lived through years of watching my back and avoiding light signatures because charlatans like you planted a seed of us as being “immortal hybrids” that couldn’t be killed by a rifle bullet or arrow. Bigelow Aerospace does not have any orbiting “Space Stations”currently operating, aside the BEAM, which is docked to the ISS. Genesis 1 & 2 are currently nothing more than unmonitored and completely useless space junk orbiting the earth (if they even still do). You know this and I know this (having worked the Bigelow Campus for almost 10 years). Why the misinformation? You are irresponsibly hyping fear and panic within the Uinta Basin community. Why? I still have many friends in the area and I am still currently conducting research in the basin. Maybe you guys should try factual reporting instead of the constant regurgitation of the same old beaten to death alien stories of man-eating beasts. You guys have very few fans within the Basin, in case it matters.
As a matter of fact, the tale of the “Skinwalker” is NOT, and has never been of extraterrestrial origin. If you actually had spent some research time and talked to some of the Ute or Navajo elders, they would have gladly explained this to you. So, the DIA has completed its U.S. Government investigation on the Ranch (1:42)? I find this an interesting statement, as I have never encountered a DIA agent on the Ranch. I am MPI and would have surely wanted to say “hello” to a fellow colleague “brother in arms”. Do you guys happen to have looked through their “files”? I would love to hear more information on that. What do you mean by your statement that a decisive factor of the property sale was “A condition for us to have uninterrupted access to the Ranch under the new regime” (REGIME???) (1:43). Who is “us”? Pretty sure the new owner is not going to let you walk on at your fancy.
For those that can read between the lines and are familiar with RTB and BAASS, Dr. Kelleher gave a pretty good explanation for the reasons of the sale. Had nothing to do with the hype or fear mongering you guys seemed to center your “documentation” on. (1:54) People like yourselves have built an empire of “expertise” on subjects like Skinwalker Ranch, yet you know nothing about it and are completely irrelevant to the subject. Your armies of useful idiots and internet trolls have made it almost impossible for serious scientists to publish their work and experience for fear of ridicule and intimidation. I do not hold allegiance to anyone and have no problem calling you out. I am also aware of the underlying destructive work of internet phantoms such as Isaac Koi (email@example.com) and have the means to uncover and illuminate if I ever decide to. As stated prior, I am planning on publishing two books by the end of the year. The first one will tell my story of the Ranch as I have lived and experienced it, the second book will show all of my government and aerospace reports along with hundreds of investigative pictures.
My hope is to put charlatans out of a job and give the Skinwalker Ranch the respect and dignity it truly deserves. It is not a “mental and emotional torture chamber”, but a place of beauty, history and home to a slew of individual entities. It is a place that will test you; it will know everything about you and it will treat you based on how you treat it. It will show you your boundaries. It is a very unique place, but not the “slasher paradigm” you depict it as. And for you guys out there that have bombarded me with questions regarding my attitude toward “GK” or “JC”, as you affectionately call them, I hope I have explained myself sufficiently. I have met Mr. Knapp a few times at Bigelow Aerospace and must say that appeared quite arrogant and cocky. I have never met Mr. Corbell and have no intentions in doing so, as he is absolutely irrelevant to science, research, truth or field investigation. This is nothing personal; this little flick is quite catchy and entertaining, and I hope it has paid for itself and then some. It is a business venture afterall, and making money is not a bad thing… But it should have been labeled as a “based on”story, and not invoking the illusion of truth and actual scientific reporting. I do not understand why this was not more closely quality checked by the serious minds interviewed in the second segment. I understand that this footage was about 20 years old, but still...

No one typically has a reason to go to an Indian reservation unless it has a casino. The typical American doesn’t care about radioactive waste or medical and environmental testing on a reservation, as long as it isn’t in their backyard. Dulce is only about seventy-seven air miles from Los Alamos Labs, and it’s not much further to Sandia Labs and the Air Force Weapons Lab. It is fairly close in air miles to Fort Carson and Pueblo, Colorado, where the nation’s chemical and biological weapons are stored. It’s also close to Rio Blanco and Rulison, Colorado, where more Project Plowshare nuclear explosions occurred. Many people do not realize that Trinidad, Colorado, is also fairly close to Dulce, near the San Luis Valley. Many mutilations occurred in this area, to include Red River, New Mexico. Trinidad was also the location of another Plowshare detonation that started in 1970. And don’t forget the Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, where the military tested more biological and chemical weapons.
At Skinwalker Ranch, a rancher found a mutilated calf within forty-five minutes of placing an ear tag on the animal while he was in close proximity to the calf. The calf was basically incinerated, its eyeball found lying next to it. If you are starting to see similarities in Skinwalker Ranch and Dulce, you are not alone. Skinwalker Ranch is also located near an Indian reservation and is close to the Dugway Proving Ground, where germ warfare and chemical weapons were tested and developed. The area around Skinwalker Ranch also reported a high number of cattle mutilations. I will eventually try to explain everything in more detail. Anyway, the best guess for the mystery orb is that it is a nonlethal—or in the case of the calf at Skinwalker Ranch, a lethal—weapon developed by the United States.
Hey MM, I hope lukes asks him to show some credentials so we know if we must take his story with a grain or a boulder of salt.
until Big Tom got so scared he sold up.....and then stayed on working for Bigelow!
Don't Dig on Shermann Ranch, you cannot go in to the ground
Our approach is to do good, high quality research using a standard scientific approach. One of the missions of the institute is to make information widely available
